 I have been getting shooting pains in my chest for over a year now and have been told its so many different things but i cant seem to get an answer as to what it is, a few months back i then woke up one morning with an awful back pain that felt like i couldnt breath properly and my back was mega tight. I went to the docs and they think the two things are related even though being different paiins and sent me for a chest xray to check my ribs and stuff were ok. That came back fine so i need to go back to the docs again, i am on tabs for the pain but they dont work, my shooting pains have been worse than ever this week getting them several times a day and they literally make me scream in agony from the shock of pain shooting through my chest. I was just wondering if any one else had experienced anything like this as i cannot seem to get an answer out of anyone and its starting to worry me.

I don't know if they are related but my chest pains are back. They started about 2 weeks ago when
I was shoveling and I thought I pulled a muscle but they are getting progressively worse. I haven't
been back to the cardiologist in over a year as I'd been doing fine and seriously cannot afford the
prices they charge. I've been getting stressed at work and think they are being triggered by it again.
I had heart cath and everything was fine even though one side of my heart is upside down and
when I get stressed it doen't pump right. That was what caused the pain. I took 400 Co Q-10 for
many years and stopped about 6 months ago. STUPID. I just picked up a bottle today and am
going back on them. It worked so well I even got rid of the nitro and toprol. It may not work for
everyone but for me it did.
